Pressure on the the Pokes


Of all the people I've heard talk about the Gonzaga/Oklahoma State, one has said they think the Zags have a chance. I am amazed that so few are talking about how dominant we could be inside and how streaky OKST can be from the perimeter. On top of that, this Cowboys team is not deep. A little foul trouble and they become very beatable. I' m surprised that no one is picking the Zags outright in this game. But I think that works to our advantage. No expectations could work very well and give us the chip on our shoulder we need to overcome their desire to prove themselves. OKST is more talented athletically but not sure they are better basketball players than we are. I see this being a great game coming down to whether we shoot it well and whether one of their perimeter guys goes off and force our defense to adjust, freeing up their other guys. Besides, for all the criticism Few gets around here, he does have a great record in these first round games and the team generally is very well prepared. He knows this opponent well and has an extra prep day to work with. We play well, I think we win this game. Then a chance at sweet revenge against Arizona.
